    Summary

    The State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) is a core assistance program that provides funds to build capabilities at the State, local, tribal, and territorial levels, to enhance our national resilience to absorb disruptions and rapidly recover from incidents both natural and manmade as well as to implement the goals and objectives included in State homeland security strategies and initiatives in their State Preparedness Report (SPR). 


    For FY 2022, DHS is focused on the criticality of information sharing and collaboration to building a national culture of preparedness and protecting against terrorism and other threats to our national security. The threats to our nation have evolved during the past two decades. We now face continuous cyber threats by sophisticated actors, threats to soft targets and crowded places, and threats from domestic violent extremists who currently pose the greatest terrorism threat to the nation. Therefore, for FY 2022, DHS has identified six priority areas related to the most serious threats to the nation. Recipients are expected to address those priority areas with their SHSP funds. Recipients should allocate a total of 30 percent of their SHSP award funds across these six priority areas.


    The following are the six priority areas for FY 2022, along with the minimum corresponding percentage of funds that each recipient will be required to allocate:

    • Enhancing the protection of soft targets/crowded places – 3 percent
    • Enhancing information and intelligence sharing and analysis – 3 percent
    • Combating domestic violent extremism – 3 percent
    • Enhancing cybersecurity – no minimum percent
    • Enhancing community preparedness and resilience – 3 percent
    • Enhancing election security – no minimum percent

    A state or high-risk urban area must allocate the remaining 70 percent of their funding to gaps identified through their Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR) process. Likewise, there are several enduring security needs that crosscut the homeland security enterprise to which recipients should consider allocating funding across core capability gaps and national priorities. The following are enduring needs that help recipients implement a comprehensive approach to securing communities:

    • Effective planning
    • Training and awareness campaigns
    • Equipment and capital projects
    • Exercises
     

    History of Funding

    The FY21 allocation to the State Homeland Security Program was $415,000,000.

    Additional Information

    For FY 2022, each SHSP recipient is required to submit an Investment Justification (IJ) for the four National Priority Areas with associated minimum spend requirements. Each of these four investments must also account for at least the relevant minimum percentage (12 percent) of the applicant's SHSP allocation. State Administrative Agencies (SAAs) may submit complete project-level information at the time of application, including the National Priority Area IJs, but are not required to do so. As a reminder, all SHSP funded projects must have a demonstrated nexus to achieving target capabilities related to preventing, preparing for, protecting against, and responding to acts of terrorism. However, such projects may simultaneously support enhanced preparedness for disasters unrelated to acts of terrorism. 


    DHS/FEMA also requires SHSP recipients (states, territories, and high-risk urban areas) to complete a THIRA/SPR and prioritize grant funding to support closing capability gaps or sustaining capabilities that address national priorities and/or support enduring needs. Additional information on the THIRA/SPR process, including other National Preparedness System (NPS) tools and resources, can be found at https://www.fema.gov/national-preparedness-system. Detailed information on THIRA/SPR timelines and deadlines can be found in the Preparedness Grants Manual (https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/178291)
